GILDED MIRROR GLASS
Glass gilding is a process which involves laying gold or metal leaf onto the back of a clear piece of glass using a gelatine 'size'. Each leaf is individually laid, and once completed, left to dry creating a beatufiul mirror-like finish. We then use different ageing techniques to create an amazing array of finishes.
This ancient technique dates back to pre-Roman eras but saw a revival back in the 18th century by French specialist decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy and contiues to be practiced by a small number of specailist decorators across the world today.
Our glass can be used for mirrors & splashbacks and is available in custom sizes to suit any project. If you would like a quote for our gilded glass or have any questions regarding this service please contact us.
